Thanks to a generous gift from Linda and Turan Duda, FAIA [BEDA ‘76], students from the College of Design are participating in an immersive, two-week visiting designer program.

Partnering with MASS Design Group, students from Architecture and Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning are grouped into teams of 5-6 students to look at one of three sites in NC. Designers from MASS include David Saladik, Jha D Amazi and Sierra Bainbridge, each of whom has an extensive background in working embedded within communities to create public memorials that honor collective identities and recognize the histories of marginalized people around the globe.
